A former Fox News contributor has accused Sean Hannity of sexual harassment after he invited her back to his hotel room and then never booked her for his show again after she declined.
Schlussel said, “He tried to get me to go back to the hotel with him after the show. Both he and Bill Shine, his executive producer, treated me horribly and basically head faked me, and told me Oh, we’re going to double team, which was a weird phrase to use, this Palestinian guy that I was up against on the show, and then every time I tried to open my mouth and say something they said, obey your host. You can’t say anything, or we’re going to shut off your microphone, and when I looked at the tape I barely said anything, and this Palestinian talked the whole time, and then after that, I wasn’t booked on his show again, and he called me and yelled at me. And it was made clear to me that I didn’t go back to him with his hotel after and all this other stuff, and I got a very weird feeling about the whole thing, and I kind of knew I wouldn’t be back on his show.”
Schlussel added that people should ask about Sean Hannity’s former executive producer, and why she quit.
She said, “This kind of stuff is all over the place at Fox News and anything that has to do with Sean Hannity.”
The Fox News sexual harassment scandal isn’t limited to Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly. People need to keep asking questions because it is clear that there is an entire culture of sexual harassment and illegal treatment of women at the network.
People need to take a closer look at Sean Hannity because the scandal at Fox News is showing no signs of slowing down.
